Cannabis is the most widely used drug in the world, which has no addictive compounds and have no recorded deaths from the use of cannabis alone. The plant is used for recreational and medicinal purposes, cannabis does aggravate people into stupid or obnoxious actions but appreciated for its ability to help open our eyes to what is around us. There are many diseases and sicknesses we are aware it helps with, it is used widely throughout South African tribes still today as treatment for the ill. The legislation of cannabis will bring down a lot of crime and harder drug abuse because at the moment the same person you buy your cannabis from sells cocaine and heroin as well. South Africa was the first country in the world to banned the use of cannabis based on racism, a high percentage of our country uses cannabis and permitting the use will move this country forward and get past this argument about this plant.
